Question:

I have the PRTG Network Monitor by Paessler in use and want  to integrate the SNMP capable sensors. Where do I find the required Didactum MIB?

Answer:

You can download the MIB file with the required SNMP information for the networked monitoring units and IP sensors directly in the web interface. In the English web interface under Preferences please go to the SNMP tab. At the bottom you find the entry Download MIB file.  Just click on the entry.

Alternatively, you can download Didactum's MIB here as well.

Then import Didactum MIB file with a so-called MIB browser. A free MIB browser can be found here.

After importing the MIB with the MIB Browser, please copy the corresponding OID's into your Network-Management-System (NMS).

Further information about the SNMP OID`s of the sensors can be found here.


Question:

I am planning to launch a network monitoring software. At the same time I'm looking for the security of my server room monitoring a physical environment (temp / humidity / water). In which network management systems, the Didactum monitoring can be integrated hardware?

Answer:

The Didactum monitoring systems are stand-alone monitoring systems. To run this TCP / IP-based measurement and monitoring technology, no software installation on notebook, PC or server is required.

However, since this alarm system are SNMP compatible, a connection in SNMP tools and leading network management software (NMS) is possible. Necessary for the integration of Didactum monitoring hardware and Didactum sensors in management environments SNMP MIB files are included.

Customers Didactum set the monitoring hardware under the following solutions (excerpt):
